News__ FEMEN FIGHTS

December 02, 2010 | By

Ukrainian feminist protest group, FEMEN are at it again. FEMEN was founded in 2008 but gained international fame when the FEMENistas protested against "sex tourists, sexism and other social ills" while topless. Today, three FEMENistas were arrested for a topless protest they conducted last week. The girls held signs in both Ukrainian and English about female strength while marching down a busy highway. During the original arrest, ten police officers took down the bare-breasted women and threw them in front of a court. The girls were eventually released. Post-jail, they issued a video promise to the police detective saying that they will "stalk him right back and practice their legal right to protest everywhere he goes." Although they have a reputation of being tasteless--Gee, could this have anything to do with the topless thing? And if so, that is blatant sexism so we say fight on--FEMENistas are not afraid of anything, including jail, authority of losing a boob in battle. Tops off, girls on!
